The Golden spice has been used in India for ages. So in food, if we have a yellow color, it is most likely due to Turmeric. It has many beneficial compounds, the most important one being, curucuminoids, of which the most important one is curcumin. A normal Turmeric powder or haldi has 1%-2% curcumin, whereas our Lakadong Turmeric Powder sourced from Jaintia village in Meghalaya has 7%-9% (lab tested through NABL & ICMR).
This recipe is a twist on the Energizing Turmeric-Tulsi-Ginger Golden Tea. We simply make it refreshingly cold.
Refreshing Turmeric Iced Tea
If cool beverages are your thing, you can enjoy this healthy brew. This is as refreshing and rejuvenating for the summers.
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and place it over medium heat.
Stir often and let the mix come to a boil.
Let it simmer for a few minutes.
Switch off the heat. Cover the saucepan with a lid and allow the brew to sit for a couple of minutes.
Strain and drink it warm.
If you prefer a sweet touch, add a dash of honey.
Pour the boiled mix after cooling in a mason jar topped with ice.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice to enhance the flavour.
Bottom’s up for good health! Add stevia instead of Honey for the true vegan falvor.
Pro Tip – Turmeric tends to settle at the bottom. Just stir to mix!
